Staging a property

The ‘staging’ of a property refers to hiring or purchasing furniture and decor for the purpose of presenting a property for sale. Professional styling and staging can assist in highlighting a home’s features, making it more appealing to potential purchasers.

When walking into an empty home or room it can be hard to see the possibilities and potential of the space and buyers may find it difficult to visualise making the space their own.

Photography will represent your property online and in print. Marketing material can fall flat when photos of the property are bland and not appealing. Staging can assist in alluring buyers through vibrant and engaging marketing material.

Professional styling and staging can encourage buyers to imagine themselves living at the property. It provides potential purchasers with an idea of how furniture could be arranged in the home and how much space will be available when it is furnished.  Most of us have seen a vacant property for sale and it is hard to imagine what you can with the space when it is empty.

Property staging considers a holistic approach to preparing your home for sale, keeping the flow and traffic of each room as high priority.

There are different ‘levels’ of staging available;

  1. Complete staging- the full staging of a vacant property.
  2. Part staging- compliment your existing furniture and décor with the addition of staged furnishings. This will help highlight your homes features with expert advice on how to best present your home.
  3. Styling consultation-  this service provides an in-depth consultation on your home providing tips and advice on how to present each room and your home for sale.

Whilst it is an additional cost when selling your property, it can often assist in achieving a higher sale price, making the investment worthwhile.
